Look What I Found at Dollar Tree!

I found these 3-D Geometric Shapes at Dollar Tree yesterday! I plan to use them during the first week of school to have students create a growth mindset classroom display!  I will give each student a face to color and write a growth message on!

Dodecahedron:  12 faces (pentagons)
Icosahedron:  20 faces (triangles)
Rhombicuboctahedron has:  26 faces (8 triangles and 18 squares)
Small Stellated Dodecahedron:  60 faces (triangles)

  1. Wow, these are awesome! I definitely need to check out the Dollar Tree by my house. I love your idea of using growth mindset on them. I created a growth mindset bulletin board for the hall last year, but these would be way more hands on and engaging for students. I can already think of other ways to use these in math, science, and LA. They would be great for math games, science reviews, and character cubes. Thanks for such a great share! :)
